Also, how do you like the falkens? I really would be interested in running them next cause I do more road driving than trails, so it would be nice to have something that would last and in a 37 at the same time. Are they snow rated?

I am switching to a more aggressive tire, but that's due to cost and that I find myself offroading quite a bit in the summer. So far I love the falkens couldn't ask for more in an all terrain

good buddy of mine gave me a sweet idea, well two actually. one of them pertaining to the falkens which i actually thought about, which is just to buy a cheaper groover and go at them, make every sipe essentially 1/4" this should give me a pretty big difference off road, and keep them handling like they do on road. i loved the idea of retreads but the more i thought about it is, one, the casing is still military. so deflating tires probably won't even help the tire flex much. and two the casing should be fine when filled up, but if they do flex when aired down then that multiplies the stress on the seam.

the other idea is for the stretch, instead of running coil overs he gave me the idea of simply switching the cross member around, this would give me about 7" without much work at all.

thirdly, we've come up with a plan for a jig to make corners, this way we don't have to pay anyone, and it keeps the cost super low. this is if i don't decide just to do the sides, and to the back later.

looks like flipping around the cross member will give me an 8" rear stretch. so i think ill go with it. buying 3/16 plate this week for the corners, whatever is left over will go into a bumper and maybe some mounts ill have to make. synergy bracket was supposed to come in saturday but i'm assuming it didn't show due to the weather, hopefully i can get it on this week. ordered a tire groover and will be looking forward to having some fun with that. other wise ill be getting the stretch done by the end of february if it kills me.

Good idea to sipe. I'll be having mine done at DT next time I order. I believe it's free too.

synergy bracket and castor shaft brace on. Next to check clearance at passenger full bump but it's made a world of difference in the drive. I also might drill it out to a 5/8" bolt. No idea yet
